Those Alexa Meade paints on the surfaces of live human subjects, found objects, and architectural spaces in a way that optically compresses 3D space into a 2D plane when photographed. Every one of these is an actual live person.
Mercedes-Benz, Denim & Supply Ralph Lauren, and MINI Cooper have commissioned Alexa to create art installations around the world. Her portrait subjects include such individuals of note as triple-Grammy Award winner Gotye.
Jay-Zâ€™s Life & Times made a video about Alexaâ€™s creative process that also captured a sneak peek at one of her side projects: transforming her Los Angeles home into a Funhouse. Other side projects include turning her garage into a camera obscura theater, designing tessellating shape tiles, and making a puzzle for the blind.
